2013 NCAA Tournament – Will Creighton make the Tourney this season

0 Comments

Creighton entered the 2012-13 season as the team to look out for– mid-major or otherwise. But the Bluejays have losted 6 of their last 11, and not in the top 25 anymore. And now the top team is Wichita State in the Missouri Valley Conference standings. heading into the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

2013 NCAA TournamentWith just two regular season games to go, Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports asks an interesting question: could Creighton miss the 2013 NCAA Tournament entirely? It’s a long shot, to be sure. But Borzello presents a scenario where the Shockers topple the Bluejays in the regular season finale, then take down the conference title as well. At that point, there’s at least a slim possibility that the MVC might only manage one bid. And it would obviously go to Wichita State.

Equally as bad for the team from Omaha would be if they stumbled, Wichita State cruised and an entirely different team — say, Indiana State or Northern Iowa — won the conference tourney. Then two MVC teams would be getting spots ahead of Creighton.

That said, it’s still unlikely that the Jays will be left out of the Field of 68. And they have the personnel to make some noise once they get in. But they could sure make life a lot easier on themselves if they take care of business on the court over the next couple weeks — particularly at home against the Shockers on Saturday.

David Pride of Freesportspicksdaily.com writes “Win or lose, the Wichita State game isn’t the problem for Creighton. Creighton has all the quality wins it needs. The issue is the road game against Bradley. Creighton’s been pretty sketchy on the road, and taking ANOTHER bad conference loss is what is going to ultimately do the Blue Jays in, if they are bounced from the field.”

So long as Creighton doesn’t lose to Bradley, or a bad team in the MVC tournament, they’re fine, no matter how the Wichita State game goes. Bet on 2013 NCAA Tournament.
